In Nursing School, one of my good friends and I would always talk about having a guy in our lives who would only qualified if they had the 3 C’s. We used to say hey 3C girl what you up to and it would be the funniest thing ever but we were so serious. We even wanted the 3C’s for ourselves! The 3 C’s were simple: CASH, CAREER, CRIB/CAR (4C’s in a wayJ). We would crack up eating lunch talking about how our guy friends just didn’t add up and were missing at least one C and it became our steady joke.
This past week after work I came home worn out and it hit me, I really just want PEACE in my life. It hit me again, my PRAYER life needs to take off with urgency. Then for the third time it hit me and I called out to God, “I really want to stay on the right path so I can discover my life’s PURPOSE. Immediately I heard God say “you went from wanting the 3C’s for yourself and your guy friend to needing MY 3P’s for yourself”. I instantly knew I was going to share this revelation with you all.
I have a good career, my bank account looks pretty good, and I have a car/house. I have so many other things to be thankful for and it’s a beautiful life I live, but none of that matters if I have no peace on a daily basis. How happy am I going to be at a career if my soul is not at peace with it? How effective am I going to be if I cannot pray when my finances don’t add up to pay my bills? How am I going to change the world and be productive if I can’t stay on course with Gods purpose he has for my life? It’s simple…I won’t!
You can take away everything I have and if I have peace, a good prayer life, and zoned in purpose, I'm sure I will be fine. God and his virtues are the only things that matters when all these material things pass away. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take peace any day over a paycheck. If you feel that these possessions are more important then I urge you to pray to God about your motives. Maybe there is a root of something planted in your heart that needs to be plucked and you can only do that by prayer. Everyone wanders around aimlessly doing anything for a come-up and even if it results in some sort of success, their hearts are not at peace because they are doing things God never called them to do and they’re doing them with the wrong motives. It’s plain and clear they had no definite purpose and I never want to end my life not fulfilling what God truly put me here for!
I close to simply say I was JUST like you not too long ago wishing for my 3C’s and those 3C’s in a man. I thought they were important. God however, changed my heart and mind and now I'm looking forward to the 3P’s in my life because they will truly bring me to becoming and staying the woman God has called me to be. Stay focused and know that God only wants the very best for you and once you get right with him all that other stuff will come.
